A Druid's tattoos

Image
Adrian is a big man and of my friends in Bristol the only person who has just about as much ink as I have - maybe more.  His legs are covered and there's quite a bit of stuff elsewhere.  All of them appear to be influenced by his beliefs.  He even had some druid symbols tattooed over his already completed leg piece.

I had planned to get more information from him about his tattooist and the sequence of his tattoos but haven't yet done so.  That will follow.

He and I were at a convention at the Costa Brava earlier this month and it's at the hotel I took these photos.

More and more tattoos

I am one of those people the BBC writes about online, who want more and more ink.

As my upper leg piece moves into its final stages the obvious problem emerges.  You can't really see what the whole picture looks like unless you join up a series of photos, something I will get done when it is completed.

The BBC article is interesting and very fair, quoting psychologists who say apart from being more extrovert they can see no difference in personality between those who get multiple tattoos and those who don't.  It's about the aesthetics.
